Do you have a story to tell, a poem to pen? Why not share it with the world?
Congratulations to the poets published in the Momaya Poetry Review 2018
2018 seems best characterized by uncertainty, growth and change. On so many fronts, the battle between fear and anger, love and hate, simmered under the surface. It’s a fine line between adoration and enmity, both requiring an intensity of passion, an attachment to caring, a depth of emotionality. People the world over have been determining what they really want out of life and setting a course towards a truer connection to love. But what does that mean? What does a world of love look like? This year, LOVE is the theme of the Momaya Poetry Review, where twenty-nine poets excavate the depths of their own hearts and paint the pages with the brushwork of their findings in verse.
